Accept Chips (Accepts) are wood chips that fall within a specified length and thickness size range determined by the buyer or a contract. Accept Chips may also limit bark content to a specified range. A chip sample is often taken and put through a chip classifier to determine the quantity of accepts, overs (over thick & over length), and unders (fines, and pins) in a load.
Accept Chips are a customer specific tolerance based on their needs for file product.
For example: ABC CHIP requires 1″ (2.54 cm) chips with bark content of: 1% for pulp chips.
When sizing chips, you typically have acceptable chips, fines which fall below acceptable chips, and overs which are larger than accepts.
